CartonsThe long-life cartons we use for our beverages have the lowest carbon footprint of the most commonly used packaging in New Zealand and Australia, according to a recent Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). Here’s why:
saveBOARD is a new venture backed by Tetra Pak, Freightways and Closed Loop and has a newly built recycling facility in Hamilton, processing beverage cartons, coffee cups and soft plastics into building materials to replace plywood, particle board and plaster board. This is creating a local circular economy for these beverage containers and limit valuable resources going to landfill.
saveBoard is currently working with local government and community groups to develop drop off points around the country for used beverage cartons and their ultimate goal is for used beverage cartons to be collected as part of kerbside recycling for all New Zealanders.Click HERE to find your nearest drop off location
